People's Gas company building in that
city which are from the same quarry as
the granite used in the Lincoln monu

of an Inferior quality on account of some
dark spots appearing In the stone. Mr.
Wait discovered that the same kind 'of

ing ' where , some of the same kind of
granite Is used, and was told by compe

the granite more valuable than It other

While it is not known, it is possible that

"It speaks for itself. You people Who
stayed at home know just about as much
about it as we who were there.",

When I get ready to talk for publication

' Benton on Rooneveltlans.
However, others who have returned
from Chicago are more willing to talk,
among them being Thomas H. Benton, a
former state official. He says that the
nomination of President Taft was almost
a foregone conclusion aft! the first skir
mish which resulted In the election of
Mr. Root Mr. Benton did not form a
very favorable opinion of the Roosecelt
leaders as a general rule. They were a
little too much along the line of a rule
or ruin policy and did not appear to be
near as gentlemanly In their conduct as
did thoso who were lined up for the other
candidates, and In their talks rather
turned sober thinking men against them.
They were especially Insulting when
Taft men were speaking, while on the
other hand -as a general thing the Roose
velt speakers were not interrupted in any
great degree. It was the general opinion
that a great deal of the sentiment against
Mr. Taft would subside after, people had
had time to think the matter over.

We, delegates and alternates to the re
publican nutional convention, represent
ing a clear majority of the voters of tlie
republican party in the nation urn! rep
resenting a clear' majority of delegates
and alternates legally elected to thn con
vention In meeting assembled, make the
following declaration :'
We were delegated by a majority of re
publican voters of our respective dis
tricts and states to nominate Theodore
Roosevelt in the republican national con
vention as the candidate of our party
for president and thereby carry out tho
will of the voters as expressed at the
primaries. We have earnestly and con
scientiously striven to execute the com
mission entrusted to us by the party
For five days we have been denied
justice in the national convefMon. This
result has been accomplished by the ac
tion of the now defunct national com
mittee in placing upon the preliminary
roll of the convention, and thereby seat
ing upon the floor of the convention, a
sufficient number of fraudulently elected
delegates to control the proceedings ot
the convention. These fraudulent dele
gates, once seated, have by concerted ac
tion with one another put themselves
upon the permanent roll, where they
constitute an influence sufficient to con
trol the convention and defeat the will
of the party as expressed at the primar
ies. We have exhausted every known means
to hold off this conspiracy and to pre
vent this fraud upon the popular will,
but without success.
We were sent to this couventlon bear
ing the most specific instructions to
place Theodore Roosevelt in nomination
as the candidate of our party for presi
dent and we therefore deem it to be our
duty to carry out these instructions in
the only practicable, and feasible way re
maining open to us".
Therefore, be It resolved that we. rep
resenting the majority of the. voters of
the republican party and of the dele
gates and alternates legally elected to
the national republican convention, In
compliance with our instructions from
the party voters, hereby nominate Theo
dore Roosevelt as the candidate of our
party for the office of president of the
United States; and we call upon him to
accept such nomination in compliance
with the will of the party voters.
And be It further resolved, that a com
mittee be appointed by the rhalr to
forthwith notify Colonel Roosevelt of the
action here taken and request him to ap
pear before us in this ball as soon as
Mr. Prendergast then made the nomi
"I am very glad," said Mr. Prendergast,

speak here tonight so that you may see
that all people of New York are not

seems to think. N
"I want to say that If a popular pri
mary were held in New York today Mr.
Roosevelt would poll more votes than
Mr. Taft. Throughout this movement we
propose that New York la not backward
